It's typical Chinese buffet at lunch but really good with nice diversity of dishes. Lo mein, fried and steamed rice, green beans, mushrooms, chicken, pork and beef dishes. Great egg rolls, boiled shrimp, dumplings. Highly recommend for a quick, good lunch.

We were staying at the neighboring Bristlecone Motel and walked to this restaurant. There was a wide variety of chinese type meals available. Everything we ordered was good.

We had MuShu Beef and Sweet and Sour Chicken. The flavor was good and meat quality better than some places. The MuShu came wrapped in what seemed to be a flour tortilla instead of the thin pancakes on the side like we have at other restaurants. Service was fast.

We chose this place because it was about a block from the Bristlecone Motel. We walked over and ordered carry out because we had our dog with us and we were going to eat in our room. The food was simple and good. Large portions were packaged for carry out service.

After we checked into our hotel we asked the front desk for a recommendation for a quick dinner. This was the one she said was probably the best. Oh boy, were we ever disappointed. My husband ordered wonton soup which contained some grey noodles and some mystery meats floating in an oily broth. He couldn't eat it. My Szechuan tofu... More

Finally found a Chinese restaurant that makes good egg foo yung, light and airy. Usually they make it with the consistence of meat loaf. Very convenient to the Bristlecone Inn, Ramada and other motels, walking distance. One dinner was enough for both of us but we only got one fortune cookie :^(

I found it interesting to see a lunch buffet in this isolated town. The building is fresh, with beautiful tables (photo), new carpet, and spotless toilet. The green beans were very tasty. Much of the rest has similar flavor. The hot-and-sour soup has a weak stock base. Egg drop soup no better. Fried rice looks nice but might as well... More

We went for dinner here whilst staying in Ely because of the good reviews I had read. They are not wrong,this unassuming building provides really excellent food, served and well presented. Portions are substantial most people seemed to end up with a take home box whilst we were there. This really must be the best food of this type I... More
